Mission and Outcomes

The Educational Philosophy of Elizabethtown College seeks to engage students in “a dynamic, integrated learning process” by challenging students to take responsibility for their education through “a journey of self-transformation that involves intellectual, social and personal growth” (2008). Scholarship and Creative Arts Days celebrates this journey by recognizing scholarly and artistic accomplishments in the liberal arts, performing arts, sciences and professional studies.

To that end, the mission of Scholarship and Creative Arts Days is to provide a forum for student scholarship that supports and promotes the College’s main learning goals for intellectual development, critical thinking, thoughtful communication, creativity, human expression and diversity of perspectives.
